I'd like to think if I was there
In the garden as You prayed and cried
I would have stayed awake for You
So You were not alone at that time

But in truth I can see
That although I stand here now
A part of me...

Was there in the garden, asleep on the ground
And You needed companions, there was no one around
And I'm sorry I left you, to the anguish and pain
And but for the grace of God, I'd fall asleep again

I'd like to think if I was there
As the crowd demanded, 'Crucify'
I would have been a louder voice
Calling out to them 'What is His crime'

But in truth I can see
That although I stand here now
A part of me...

Was there in the rabble, when the crime was declared
And I cried out for Your blood, 'Let Barabbas be spared'
And I'm sorry I left you, to the mocking and scorn
And but for the grace of God, I hear my angry voice

Where you there
When they crucified The Lord
Where you there
When they crucified The Lord

I'd like to think if I was there
Watching as You took Your final breath
I would have known You'd rise again
I'd have remembered all the words You'd said

But in truth I can see
That although I stand here now
A part of me...

Was scared and embarrassed as I watched You die
I believed You were King but You did not even fight
And I'm sorry I forgot all You'd said and done
And but for the grace of God, I'd turn away and run

I'd turn away and run
I was there, when they crucified my Lord
I was there, when they crucified my Lord
